The Irish Rose Essential Oil Company is owned and managed by the de Lacey family.
"I have always indulged my passion for roses and one day in our Rose Garden, when filling a wheel barrow full of rose petals, the idea for a truly natural fragrance was born. The roses are hand picked at dawn and distilled immediately to preserve the exquisite scent in a pure natural rosewater. A Master Perfumer skillfully blends our rosewater with essential oils to produce Rosa damascena, an Eau de Toilette, which contains 100% natural fragrance ingredients."
Generations of Irish business women
My Great Grandmother reputedly had six shops in the City of Dublin. Although I never met her, she has always been a part of our lives, because my mother has passed on the business acumen she learnt as a child helping in her Grandmother’s shops and as an independent business woman herself. My Mother continues to be an inspiration to me today and I hope that one day I too can fulfill the role that my Mother has filled in my life, for my daughter."
